Olin Lake Preserve To Host Deer Hunt

(WOLCOTTVILLE) – A deer management hunt will take place at Olin Lake Nature Preserve.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says they will conduct the hunt from November 16 through December 1, during the fire arm deer hunting season.

The entire nature preserve will be closed to the public during this time, as hunting will take place on 116 acres of the 270 acre DNR property.

All regulations of the firearms season will apply; however, the preserve is not being opened to hunting in general. Hunters have been selected by drawing for the 18 days of the hunt.

Although hunting is not generally permitted at nature preserves, this hunt is needed because deer numbers continue to be excessively high, and over-browsing by deer threatens the long-term health of the property’s plants, especially white trilliums and other spring wildflowers.
